headquarters in new york, this is the "daily show" with jon stewart. ( cheers and applause ) captioning sponsored by comedy central >> jon: welcome to the "daily show." my name is jon stewart. got a big show for you tonight. bill kristol, editor of "the weekly standard," will be joining us. he's a fox news contributor. yet, yet, i hope to talk to him about a less contentious issue than that, like afghanistan. all right. ( laughter ) what a show. we're going to start with something that i found on the tv box this morning that was maybe one of the greatest things i've ever seen in my life. >> mark halperin. what was the president's strategy? >> are we in the seven-second delay today? >> oh, lordy. >> i want to characterize how i thought the president behaved. >> we have it. we can use it, right, alex? >> yeah, sure, come on. >> go for it. >> i thought he was kind of a dick yesterday. ( laughter ) >> jon: mark halperin, senior political analyst, editor at large of "time" magazine just called the president a dick. and that wasn't like a spontaneous, like, can't contain myself, you lie! like
this housekeeper and her story, apparently that is falling apart. jon: what a dramatic turn of events in this story. good morning to you on this friday before the fourth of july, i'm jon scott. julie: i'm julie banderas in for jenna lee. we begin with another delay in the casey anthony murder trial. jon: judge belvin perry is calling an indefinite recess, the prosecution was planning to continue its rebuttal case by calling two witnesses to dispute defense testimony that medical examiners did a shoddy job with caylee anthony's autopsy. julie: defense attorney jose baez objecting, saying this wasn't included in any reports, the judge calling a recess to give them time to de pose the witnesses. jon: the prosecution was also planning on rebutting cindy anthony's testimony yesterday. you might remember casey's mother claimed she is the one who did internet searches for chlorophyll and chloroform on the anthony home computer, all this now is going to have to wait, judge perry saying he was going to give the attorneys tomorrow off to prepare closing arguments but now, they're going to have to work. phil
possible but that's not possible all over the place. >> jon: do we have unrealistic expectations about the idea of rebuilding countries that we in some ways helped unbuild? ( laughter ) >> look, in afghanistan, we helped drive the soviets out of there. we pulled out of there in 89, 90 91. we know what happened in the next 10 years, the people in expwafg in terms of 9/11. i don't think we want to go through that again. if that means we have to keep 100,000 troops there forever, it's a war that was underresourced under president bush. president obama did the right thing, i think, in surging there and i think we can draw down as long as we do so responsibly. it's not easy, though, and there's no one solution for each part of the world, obviously. but we can't turn our backs on the world, jon. i know you would like to. i don't want to fight a strawman here. >> jon: i'm very fond of the world. ( laughter ) i don't want people to get hurt-- >> and the world is very fond of you. >> jon: right now, the military and military families are bearing an overwhelming weight of these wars, and i
night at a philadelphia fund-raiser. the g.o.p. asked why he wasn't working on a deficit deal. jon cornyn was also at a fund-raiser last night. good morning, happy fourth of july weekend to you. can't we all just get along? >> apparently not in washington. listen, i think the president has a lot of reason to be frustrated with republicans. he offered them tax cuts back in the spring when they forced a government shutdown or threatening to force a government shutdown. he's put everything on the table. they have shown an unwillingness to compromise. it is an important issue in these economic times. it's not going to put a single american to work. it's not going to keep a single american in their home. it's time for them to do what they need to do, put it to bed and move along. >> can you criticize them when members of your own party are walking aassaying i'm not going to be part of this discussion anymore, until i get what i want. >> the republicans are trying to take a stand to not include tax. no one is shedding a tear about staying over fourth of july. republicans are digging in a
: you know what f you find a good one, tell me about him. >> where might i look. >> stephen: jon stewart. (laughter) he's really funny. he's really funny. let me ask you, political writing from a decade without a name this past decade, you mean. >> it's a weird decade which in a way begins with 9/11 and i think ends on the fourth of november 2008 when barack obama was elected president. and i think the very different agenda comes because obama's election comes with a financial and economic crisis. and suddenly that whole narrative which is that we're living through the fourth world war, that world history for the next 20, 30 years will is all going to be about the battle with islamist terrorism t doesn't seem to be quite like that any more. >> stephen: what is the battle? where is the fourth world war? >> i'm not sure. let's hope there isn't the fourth world war but what i do think, i have an account in this book of a very extraordinary meeting with george w bush in the early summer of 2001. don't look like that. >> stephen: hi an extraordinary meeting with him too once. but go ahead. >>

strong. this is a national poll go to the next page, you can see pawlenty and newt gingrich, jon huntsman, senator santorum is not even on here. he is at 2%. plenty of 3%. steve? >> yeah, this is a very tough news for tim pawlenty. one reason i think he held the press conference last night, he needs to do everything he can to keep himself in the discussion and in the news. so he is giving major economic speech. gives a major foreign policy speech at a time when most strategists would say it's early to be doing that. but he needs to do that to make news and renape the discussion men your numbers are as paltry as they've been -- discussion when your numbers are as paltry as they've been. >> bret: anecdotally talking to people in iowa yesterday and the day before, he still has support in iowa from folks who look at him as an alternative to mitt romney and people who like him. >> i think so. he does. he is having trouble expanding and gaining traction in a wider audience. i think one of the ways that it shows itself and the way he reacted in minnesota today. he didn't just protect his flank o
